Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

And, Aquarius, check you ATCA (PGNS) breaker on panel 11 in.

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

Close, on panel 11, circuit breaker ATCA (PGNS).

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Okay. We've got ATCA (PGNS) closed.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Okay. Now I'm looking.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Okay. It's already open.

Fred Haise (LMP)

Okay, Jack. We got it.

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

Okay, Jim. How's the attitude control?

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Okay, Jack. We've got attitude control now in the LM. We're going to try to rotate up through the bellyband.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

I like that sound like I got back there.

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

Odyssey, Houston. I've got a procedure for you.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

I want to go up this way to get away from that—the radios are powered, huh?

Jack Swigert (CMP)

Okay, Jack. Odyssey is ready to copy.

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

Okay, Jack. What we want you to do is close the reactants valve on fuel cell 2. Power down your inverters. Power down your battery relay bus. Battery ties, off, and pull your entry circuit breakers, entry battery circuit breakers A, B, and C.

Jack Swigert (CMP)

Check the control, and make sure we don't go to gimbal lock, Fred.

Jack Swigert (CMP)

Okay, Jack; understand. Close REAC valve circuit breakers in fuel cell 2. Power down inverters. Power down BAT relay bus. BAT TIES, OFF. Power entry and both running circuit breakers A, B, and C. All off.

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

That's affirmative, Jack. And close the reactant valve on fuel cell 2, there.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Okay. I'll do that, and Jack'll do that other.

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

Okay, Jack; on fuel cell 2, open circuit it.

Jack Swigert (CMP)

Okay. Fuel cell 2 is open circuited. Do you want me to go through the standard shutdown procedure for the REAC valves and -

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

Odyssey, Houston. All you have to do is close the REACs valve on fuel cell 2.

Jack Swigert (CMP)

Okay. CB REACs and vent REAC valves all closed.

Fred Haise (LMP)

… an hour and a half.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Okay. Odyssey is completely powered down, according to the procedure that you read to Jack.

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

Roger; we copy. That's where we want to be, Jim.

Fred Haise (LMP)

And, Jack, have you all got good LM data down there now?

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

That's affirmative, Fred. We're getting good LM data.

Fred Haise (LMP)

Okay. In that case, I think I'll pull out some display breakers and just let you all keep an eye on things.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

He's turning his lights off now, too.

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

Stand by 1 on that, Fred.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

What about these lights up here?

Fred Haise (LMP)

Where would you like …?

Jim Lovell (CDR)

We don't want to lose COMM with him.

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

Aquarius, Houston. Stand by on opening your circuit breakers for displays. We're going to let you know what they are, and I have some gyro torquing angles for you.

Fred Haise (LMP)

Okay. What page is that there gyro torquing?

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Okay. What page is the, do we write the gyro torquing angles on there, Jack?

Fred Haise (LMP)

Okay. We're there now, Jim. Jim's got it. Go ahead with the gyro torquing angles.

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

Okay. We'd like you to proceed with the fine aline and your gyro torquing angles are X plus 003.30, Y plus 024.80, Z minus 015.10. Over.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Okay. I read your gyro torquing angles as plus 003.30, Y is plus 023, I only have four numbers for Y; you'll have to give that one to me again, and Z is minus 015.10. Read Y again, please.

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

Okay, Jim. X and Z are correct and Y is plus 024.80.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Okay. We read Y as plus 024.80. We'll proceed on Activation 40 to fine aline the platform.

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

Roger. Okay, Aquarius, proceed as on page 40 with IMU fine aline.

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

Aquarius, Houston. Can you see any stars out the LM window?

Fred Haise (LMP)

We'll have to wipe them off, Jack. They're coated with water right now.

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

Roger. As soon as you get a chance to—on your position—to take a look, we'd like to know if you can see stars for alinement purposes.

Fred Haise (LMP)

Okay. Jim's going to be in trouble in our present attitude out his side. The Sun's there.

Fred Haise (LMP)

What have you got? How much you got left in battery A? Okay. I wish I knew what the hell they were thinking right now … —

Jim Lovell (CDR)

They're talking about powering down and doing a P51 here?

Fred Haise (LMP)

No. They were just thinking about P52

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

Aquarius, Houston. Negative on the P51. We want to stay just like we are, but we'd like to be able to correlate what you're doing with some simulator work we're going to crank up. And so if you can give us information as to what stars you can see out the window, we can make that correlation.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Would you say one more time? Give me the top two. The top two.

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

Jim, what we want you to do is go with your current fine aline and disregard the P51. What we're attempting to do is to crank up some LMS simulations to correlate what we can get out your window with what we can get out the LMS window to see if that will help us any. So when you can see some stars, if you can, you think you can recognize them and recognize constellations, please let us know.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Okay. We'll check. Stand by.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Okay. Here, unplug this.

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

Aquarius, Houston. We notice that the O2 pressure in the ASCENT TANK O2 is a little high, so we want to use some of it. So close DESCENT O2 and open ASCENT O2, tank 2. Over.

Fred Haise (LMP)

Okay, Jack. Switch now on ASCENT number 2 O2 tank, DESCENT O2 is closed.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Okay, Houston; Aquarius. How do you read?

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

Reading you 5 square, Jim. Go ahead.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Okay. I'm looking out of Fred's window. I see a lot of particles out there, but a lot of that stuff is still drifting away from us, so a lot of it is flashing in the local vicinity, and I don't recognize any constellations right now, in this particular attitude.

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

Okay, Jim. If that status changes, please let us know.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Roger. We're continuing to drift. Okay, get your TTCAs to roll.

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

And, Aquarius; Houston. I've got some circuit breakers you can open to power down displays. In addition, I have a P30 maneuver pad. Over.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Roger. Stand by, Houston. Get the CS—get the pad book.

Fred Haise (LMP)

Get the LM data—get the LM book.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

And, say—We're getting the pad book now, Jack—and say the boost on powered up?

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

Okay. I have some circuit breakers that you can open up in order to power down displays.

Fred Haise (LMP)

Okay. Stand by 1, Jack. I'm going to get my COMM carrier on.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

All right, I'll tell you what. Get all the LM stuff. Give me the LM stuff right now. Jack, give me all the LM stuff.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

All right, Jack. Hey, what do you need out of here?

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Now is there any way they can control this thing with the LM on? Fred-o?

Jack Swigert (CMP)

Looks like I'm cross-coupling here. I might as well -

Fred Haise (LMP)

Yes, you are. TTCA will give you the best controlling warning.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Yes, and I want to get out of this roll. What if I go to —

Fred Haise (LMP)

It doesn't matter where the hell you are. … gimbal lock … my flashlight or any flashlight.

Fred Haise (LMP)

… down and power down …

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Well, I'm not doing any good here.

Fred Haise (LMP)

Okay, how do you read now, Jack?

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Hello, Houston; Aquarius.

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

Aquarius, Houston. You're watching the middle gimbal there, aren't you? Go ahead, Aquarius.

Fred Haise (LMP)

Okay. Go ahead with the breakers first, Jack.

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

Okay. You watching your middle gimbal there?

Jack Swigert (CMP)

Your attitude is just straight pitch down, Jim. Okay, you're moving away.

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

Okay, Fred, I've got six circuit breakers for you.

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

Okay, they're all on panel 11. Row 1 under AC BUS B, open HELIUM PQGS for PROPELLANT DISPLAY.

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

On row 2, FLIGHT DISPLAYS, open THRUST, open MISSION TIMER, open RANGE/RANGE RATE, ALTITUDE/ ALTITUDE RATE, and open the AC BUS A RANGE RATE, ALTITUDE/ALTITUDE RATE.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Okay. They're all OPEN.

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

Okay. On row 4, PGNS, SIGNAL STRENGTH DISPLAY.

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

Okay. That concludes the powerdown of displays. And I have a P30 pad for you.

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

Okay. The purpose is a pericynthion plus 2 hours DPS abort. NOUN 33: 079:25:26.48; plus 1633.0, minus 0014.5, minus 0751.5; apogee not applicable, perigee is plus 0020.5; 1797.7, 8:35, 268, 264, plus 16410, minus 00145, minus 07338. COAS is NA. And I have two gimbal trim angles for you which will be updated. Right now, however, we want you to go with pitch 5.86, roll 6.75. Over.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Pitch and yaw, maybe, huh?

Fred Haise (LMP)

Okay, what was the last two things you gave me, a pitch and roll angle for what?

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

That's for your DPS trim.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Those were gimbal angles for—pitch and yaw.

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

Yes, that's what I mean. Sorry.

Fred Haise (LMP)

Pericynthion plus 2—Okay, DPS pericynthion plus 2, at 079:25:026.48; plus 1633.0, minus 0014.5, minus 0751.5; HA N slash A, HP plus 0020.5; 1797.7, 8:35, 268, 264, plus 16410, minus 00145, minus 07338 —

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Did we lose the water in the —

Fred Haise (LMP)

— N slash A in the COAS, and you gave me GDA angles of pitch 5.86, and you want roll 6.75.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Yes, lose—get all the little bags you can with water.

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

Aquarius, Houston. Say again, please.

Fred Haise (LMP)

Okay. We didn't answer back there, Jack. Check to see if you're on VOX.

Fred Haise (LMP)

Neither am I, okay. Why the hell are we maneuvering at all now? Are we still venting?

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Well, we're at ATT HOLD for one thing—I mean, we're at MINIMUM IMPULSE.

Fred Haise (LMP)

No, I mean why can't you null them out, somewhere?

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Every time I try to—I can't take that doggone roll out. I got to wait until they get around to the bellyband.

Fred Haise (LMP)

Wait a minute. Do you—you fight roll by using the TTCA left right. That's what you need to play with.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Okay. We'll try that. Let me get around though. Let's roll. Let it roll all the way.

Fred Haise (LMP)

Yes, you can't let it roll all the way.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

I know. I know. But I mean -

Fred Haise (LMP)

Okay. Then until it's upside down at least, huh?

Fred Haise (LMP)

Okay. Well, should I ask him what the return time on that one is? Or are you interested?

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Let's get the first things first.

Fred Haise (LMP)

Oh, you don't want to hear. Let me figure some times out here. That's at 79, and what are we at now? About—do we—do we—do we even know any better computer time, do we?

Fred Haise (LMP)

Hey, Jack. Do you still have a mission timer? You don't? Okay.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

I'll tell you what. Let's ask—let's ask Houston to give us a mission timer, computer time. They can up link it to us. Okay, hold it.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

You know, we don't have a—I don't think we have a computer clock going, and why don't you up link that stuff to us?

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

And, Fred-o, I got some fast circuit breakers on panel 16 for you.

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

Okay. On row 1 under FLIGHT DISPLAYS, SYSTEMS ENGINEER's CROSSPOINTER, OPEN. Under RCS B —

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

Open the TEMP/PRESS DISPLAY-FLAGS and PQGS/DISPLAYS.

Fred Haise (LMP)

Okay. They're both OPEN.

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

Okay, Fred. On row 3 under COMM, open DISPLAYS and under ECS, open DISPLAYS.

Fred Haise (LMP)

Okay. COMM DISPLAYS, ECS DISPLAYS, both OPEN.

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

Okay. And two more. In row 4 under HEATERS, open DISPLAYS and under EPS, open DISPLAYS.

Fred Haise (LMP)

Okay. HEATERS DISPLAY, EPS DISPLAY OPEN. And I've long since had all the lights off, floods, et cetera.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Where are those bags? Where are those bags for weighing water in the PLSS?

Jim Lovell (CDR)

We're going to fill up command module water. We'll …

Fred Haise (LMP)

Hell, do you need a QD … Jim. No way to get ours in there. I don't think.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

I wonder if one of our water … jet is. Okay, let's control—What else can we fill up there?

Fred Haise (LMP)

We're not—we're not going to —

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

We're not going to be able to up link your time because of the IU, and we have a frequency problem there. But what I'd like to do is give you a time to set up on your mission timer and give you a mark and then you can put it into the DSKY from there. Over.

Fred Haise (LMP)

Wait a minute. Why do we need a mission timer right now, anyway? I mean, that bad, they'd tell us.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Well, I'd rather have a timer going so that we—what are we going to put in the DSKY? Should we shut down the mission timer?

Fred Haise (LMP)

Is that what you want to do?

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Switch them. Okay. Let's fire on the mission timer.

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

Aquarius, we need FORWARD OMNI.

Fred Haise (LMP)

I am. Okay, Houston. If that call was an OMNI switch, I'm in FORWARD now.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Okay, Fred-o, how do I get the mission timer up? I got the mission timer cranked in.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

I got the mission timer circuit breaker in.

Fred Haise (LMP)

Okay. We're going to probably need NUMERICS LIGHTING. There you go. You got it.

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

Aquarius, Houston. I think we've got a better way of getting your mission time up.

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

Okay. We can do a VERB 55, ENTER, and then put an R1, minus 00088. In R2, minus 00059; R3 minus 03274.

Fred Haise (LMP)

Watch the crapping attitude.

Jack Swigert (CMP)

God damn. I wish you'd get to something I know.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Well, as soon as we get over here, we'll stop it with the TTCA.

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

And, Aquarius; Houston. We've got you both on VOX.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

You want us on VOX, Jack?

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

We have you on VOX. We're reading you loud and clear and the clock took good.

Fred Haise (LMP)

Okay. Looks like we're on the FDA route there, Jack.

Fred Haise (LMP)

Okay, Jack. How do you read me on NORMAL VOICE now?

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

Reading you 5 square, Fred.

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

And, Aquarius, we're ready for a VERB 74 when you can give it to us.

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

Okay. And one other thing we noticed. When you pressurized the RCS, we got an increase in pressure in the ascent tanks, and so we want to have you verify that the ascent feeds are closed. In order to do that, on panel 11, close the ASCENT FEED 1 and 2 circuit breakers on—and cycle the Parker valves, and then open the ASCENT FEED circuit breakers on panel 11.

Fred Haise (LMP)

And, Jack, Aquarius. What kind of return time is this maneuver given?

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

That puts you back in the water at 133 hours.

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

And that's an Atlantic landing site.

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

Affirmative. That's the pad that we've given you, but we may change our mind later on. We want you to have this info for now. And that's a minimum —

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

— minimum time return.

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

Aquarius, Houston. We've got to change the REFSMMAT to the one to which you're alined. So we'd like to have P00 and DATA and we'll ship that up to you.

Fred Haise (LMP)

Okay, you got it, Jack.

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

Aquarius, could you give us DATA please?

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Okay, Jack, you got it.

Fred Haise (LMP)

— the updata link, the DUA breaker may not be in, Jack.

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

Okay, Fred, and close the DUA breaker.

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

Okay, Jim, and it's coming up now. Thank you.

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

Aquarius, Houston. We're finished with the uplink. The computer's yours. We'd like to power down the DUA, so pull the DUA circuit breaker please.
